Which is the Best Greek Yogurt?

I have to tell you a little story before I begin.
When I met my husband 9 years ago, he swept me away in so many ways!
He was so different from every man I had ever known.
He was hardworking, honest, and the most structured and ritualistic man EVER!
One of the things that strike me the most about him was he Never changed his dessert. 
It was and STILL is to this date: an apple and yogurt!
So basically every time I go to the grocery store I have to buy like 20 cause he eats them twice a day!

That is the reason I accepted this Challenge between
 Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry vs Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry.

My husband is not a picky yogurt eater, he likes all brands and all flavors and I have to admit we buy
a lot of Yoplait, but I am more of a Greek yogurt fan.
This challenge was going to turn out pretty darn good!


From the outside they look quite the same


And from the nutritional value there are some small differences Like Yoplait having 2g of Sugar more that Chobani, 20%  Vitamin D and 4%Vitamin A , and less Sodium (45%) than Chobani (65%)
On the Other hand Chobani had 5g more Calcium that Yoplait, 2g more of Protein, plus 2% Iron, 6% Vitamin C and 5g of Dietary fiber than Yoplait.

Still, at the end of the day, flavor and texture will always be the number one factor for many when choosing a yogurt, especially a Greek yogurt!


Yoplait has more fruit in the cup, turns into a pinkish color when mixed and is clumpy.

Chobani has a more firm texture and is creamier when mixed. Stays whitish.

My husband and I did the blind test on each other and even though we agreed on
 some points we totally chose different Yogurts!
My husband loved the sweetness of the Yoplait
I preferred the creaminess of the Chobani
Here is the thing, when I tasted the Yoplait, I didn't get Greek. 
I just tasted a yogurt. 
When I tasted the Chobani, I felt the acidity immediately, especially since I had just tried the Yoplait
and the creaminess of it was exactly what a Greek yogurt lover wants.
And that was the deal breaker.
In my opinion when someone wants to buy Greek yogurt,  
it means they actually like the less sweet,
 the rich and creamy texture that is characteristic of Greek.

I asked 3 more people to try these yogurts and 2 out of 3 loved the sweetness of Yoplait, but preferred the creaminess of the Chobani.
None of the three were Greek yogurt buyers.
In a National Taste test Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry beat Chobani Simply 100 strawberry!
Why don't you come and try the Yoplait Taste Test for yourself! 
 Summer is just around the corner!!
Which do you think will win the Best Greek Yogurt in this taste-off?
Yogurt has become one of our essentials and has helped me lose my  post baby weight fast and helps my hubby stay in shape!

This story was sponsored by Yoplait, but the best yogurt was determined by me.
I want to Thank Yoplait for giving me the opportunity to openly express my honest opinion.

Puerto Rico


My Island can be so quiet in the morning
especially the beach
and the dark sand of Aviones Beach entices me to take off my bikini and run naked


But I didnt...so i did this instead.


The sun is gentle at that time
and my sunless skin appreciates everytime he is.





As I took these pictures from El Morro in Old San Juan
melancoly overpowered me...
This is the place I grew up
The place I left with no regrets.
The place I really never said goodbye to, but somehow always knew I would never come back.



But like a love and hate relationship
we never miss each other
until we see each other
and that my friends
is what i call, never having closure at all.

Useful and Practical Decor with Kleenex Style

Spring season is here and I love decorating!
I truly believe that the way you decorate
your home is a way of expressing 
who you are.
I also enjoy decorating with unique art pieces
 either mine or someone elses.




I recently found out these cute new designs by Kleenex Style Studio.
There are so many different and adorable styles 
and maybe even a few that'll take you by surprise!

But you got to admit this one with the owl is so cute, 
I want to hang a picture of it on my wall!


I do not use baby wipes all the time when I diaper change Gianni.
They usually have a lot of alcohol and fragrances that can irritate his skin.
My pediatrician said sometimes a tissue can clean much better!



You have to admit: this ain't no ordinary decorative tissue box!




In my bathroom I bought this style cause I think it goes better with
the decor that I have there.


I dont use makeup remover wipes because 
I make my own makeup remover as you may have seen HERE.
Kleenex tissue is the softest on my skin.
After all, Kleenex started out as facial tissue for removing makeup.



I encourage you to take their Personal Style Quiz so you can decide which Kleenex design suits you!
Thank you Kleenex for sponsoring this post and keeping my home practical and stylish!

Back to the 80's

Like I had told you all before on my last post,I bought a CK mascara in electric blue. I decided to try it with the liquid eye liner from Stila (midnight).
And since it reminded me so much like the 80's, I decided to go all the wary with this fuschia lipstick from Sephora. I don't know the name since it came in a makeup kit, so sorry!
What do you think?
